SUNDAY, Jan 18, 2015

Line-up starts at 12:15PM at Prospect Hill Shopping Center located at 516 Highland Ave., Milford, MI 48357.

1:00PM- March On Main Street

The march will begin with a brief speech and National Anthem. 2015’s March on Main Street is from Prospect Hill to SHAC.

The committee hopes to see everyone who recognizes the significance of Dr. King’s leadership and message in today’s world in attendance to support the holiday’s message of serving the community.  Marchers are also encouraged to dine in downtown Milford before making their way to Prospect Hill for the march.

Groups are encouraged to march together with signs designating their support of MLK Day.

This year's march will conclude across the street from Central Park at SHAC, located at 125 South Main St, Suite 700, Milford, MI. Hot beverages and refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the march. We will display all of the art/writing/multimedia contest entries, as well as class projects. We will have an award ceremony for the art/writing/multimedia contest. Entertainment and perfromances will also be presented, including Mrs. Darlene Smith's class from Johnson Elementary & Milford High School students will perform a song in American Sign Language.

We will provide a list and signup for community service opportunities for the national MLK Jr. Holiday on Monday Jan 19, 2015.

For people who are concerned about walking in the march, but who still want to participate, the Carls Family YMCA will be providing a bus which will follow the marchers down Main Street and conclude at SHAC. The bus will return to Prospect Hill at the conclusion of the event.
